Learning about Rhyming Couplets

Learning about Rhyming Couplets


I really have to go to the loo
I need to number one, not number two
I really need to hit the can
Where is it? Please tell me, man!
Where is it? I don't know!
I really, really gotta go!


At my school there are so many rackets,
The snapping of rulers, the cracking of packets.
The girls will chitter,
The boys will chat.
Will it ever be quiet?
I doubt that.

Simon Verster Du Toit-Kombuis (aged 11)
